What are Benchmarks and Grade Level Indicators?

Understanding Benchmarks and Grade Level Indicators:

Why do we have them?
The benchmarks and grade level indicators identify skills being assessed on the report card. They show how our physical education curriculum is aligned with the National Standards. This shows exactly how what we are grading your child in physical education class. As in other areas of education, physical education has desired outcomes for students to demonstrate to show competency as a physically educated individual.


•    Each Physical Education National Standard has a local benchmark which is a subset of the National standard.
•    Each benchmark has a local grade level Indicator which describes the actual skill that the student is graded on.


How is does this translate to your child’s report card?

Example:

A 1st grade  report card may show:
